· This Week on the Farm This week on the farm, If you follow us on social media, you will have already seen we picked a new name. Well, two new names, but they go together. Our farm will be called Boots & Hooves Acres, we love this name, and it represents us, the family, and then our animals. The Farm Stand will be our booth name at shows and our Etsy site. The Farm Stand can work for my goat milk skin products and goat cheese. We start selling summer of 2022 when we have so much milk. All the goats and animals are doing well. The milking goats have almost dried up now very little milk in their udders. We have not noticed anyone coming into heat yet again, and the bucks are just hanging out enjoying the hay and protein tubs. The chickens have slowed down on laying eggs due to our cold weather. Hopefully, we can get them laying again with extra yummies and lots of straw for deep bedding for the winter. We had at least one craft show a week, and most weekends, we had two. No craft shows on Thanksgiving weekend, just lots of family time with my family from South Dakota. We all ate way too much pie and turkey with all the fixings. We spent Thanksgiving Day with Michael's mom Linda and had turkey, homegrown potatoes, and squash with yummy apple desserts. I for sure need to go on a diet after all of the fantastic food we have eaten. We have so much to be thankful for this year, and you all are something I for sure thank God for. We moved back two years ago now, and we were welcomed with open arms. The kids love their school, and we have great jobs to be thankful for. Michael is driving a school bus for Westhope, and we live most people's dream lives with all of our animals and the farm. I keep saying I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up and want to be a Goat farmer. If you asked me five years ago or three years ago, I would laugh as we had issues with some goats in the past, but with the suitable goats and getting the fencing stuff under control, I could never see myself without our goats.
One thing I keep getting asked at craft shows is why Goat Milk soap? So, here are some benefits to using goat milk soaps. Gentle cleanser. Most commercially made soaps contain harsh surfactants that can strip your skin of natural moisture and oils, leaving it feeling dry and tight.
Goat Milk is Rich in nutrients *May improve dry skin *Natural exfoliant *Supports a healthy skin microbiome *May prevent acne If you suffer from any of these issues and want to try our soaps, we have $2 bars of small soap perfect for seeing if the soap will help you. Next week I will explain why I add Hemp seed oil to my products.
